For the most part, I was trying to figure out the big secret that Kim wanted Brian to keep from the entire town, including her family. After about 6 chapters, I figured it out. This secret is dragged all the way to the end and I feel like it dragged the story. I also did not like how Kim's parents took over the majority of the story. It kept going back to them for some reason and I really did not care to read their pov. It dragged the story and it doused me with cold water just by reading about their problems. Every time the story started to move along, the author would put the parents back in. It was so frustrating for me to be taken out of the story like that. Kim kept running from her problems and Brian just let her play with his emotions and I was almost ready to throw in the towel, but luckily the author reeled me back in.
I like the conflict between Kim and her mother. Kim was the baby of a family with all boys. That was the foundation of Kim's running away and the reasoning behind the awkward relationship with her mother. I got some character development from Brian, but I would have really liked a little bit more details. Brian was the only child of older parents and I would have like a bit more to develop his character.
I am giving this story 3 stars because it was an okay story with a major emotional story line. If it wasn’t for the parents pov, I would have gave this book a higher rating. It simply dragged the story and it did not add any essence to the overall story.
Kim Luchetti, the youngest child of the family and the only daughter, returned to her Illinois family farm after her father's heart attack. Eight years ago, she left everything behind, believing distance is the only thing that will help her heal from that tragic night. Only one man, her love, Brian Riley, knew her secret, and she had left him behind like everything else. Brian had always loved Kim and when she ran his heart was broken. When she appeared at his farm, he was so surprised he fell off the barn roof and broke both wrists. Kim moved in with him to help him deal with his temporary disability while he heals, and they are forced to confront each other's unresolved feelings, and what was left unsaid that night eight years ago...
Without spoiling the story (much), let's just say she'll do what she did AGAIN, after she basically guilt-ed herself into it. While I enjoy the slow-peeling mystery of what happened eight years ago, the way the stuff was resolved left me frustrated instead of "awww..." All in all the story was "good but flawed" into an average rating.
